McLAURIN ANNOUNCES PLANS C
FOR STATE WAJlEHIOUSE
McLaurin, Prepares for Coming Cotton T
Crop-Cone rete for Floor. Other III
Many inquiries are being received 1
by John L. McLaurin, State warehouse e:
commissioner, as to proper construe- b
tion of warehouses for the cominig
crop. The wareho'use of 1,000 bale
capacity is a simple device. To secure a
the lowest insurance rate, it is only e
necessary, Mr. A lcLaurin says, that c
the house shall have tin or metal roof, I
sufficient doors in sides and ends,
opening outward, the number depend- '
ing on length of sides and elevation f
of floor, and wooden sides and ends, d
which may be made of thinnest sub- t
stantial material. Concrete floor may s
be used, if desired. \Vooden floor will
materially Increase the insurance rate.
The whole house may be of corrugated
iron, buit it is only necessary that the
roof be of tin or metal. The building
should be located at least 100 feet I
from any other building.
The comminissioner has under ad
visiminent planis for the construction of
h orses of larger capacity. An effort. is
being mude to secure the approval of
the insur ance companies for a build
ing which may be erected at a rea
sonable cost, non which a cheap into
of insuranc' may be maintained on a
large valuation. Mr. cleLaurin hopes
to introduce the reiorting system,
whereby preiiiims are paid monthlily
upon the cotton in storage each (lay,
and upon the daily market value. All
the country houses of the State sys
tem now have the advantage of this
equitable imethod of insurance up to
a certain valuation, and the plan is to
apply this to the city or large ca
pacity warehouses.-The State.

Farmer Boys wito Want to ('ontine'
County Demonstrator P. W. Moore
has received the following letter from
Pres. Riggs, of Clemson College:
"The one year course in agriculture
at Clemson is open to farmer boys 1 S
years of age and over. It was design
ed primarily to meet the needs of the
boy who is unable to spare the time,
or who has not the money to take the
four year course. In this course It is
our desire to take a boy who is already
a farmer and make of him a better
farmer. We want men who will go
hack to farm and put Into pracl ice
what they have learned.
Clemson gives 41 scholarships to
t boys in this course. Each scholar
ship is worth $100.00 and free trui
tion. Any country boy with three or
_ more years farm experience, and wih
t has been through about the eighth
t grade, should stand a good chance of
winning a scholarship. The examinin
at lions for the award of these scholar
0 ships will be held by your couiity
superintendent of educatioli on .uly

the four year corses, I shall lbe ga id
